Brilliant location, on Princes Street and just over the road from the train station. There are about a dozen steps up to the reception, but there is a lift from the reception up to the other floors. Staff were very helpful. Overall the hotel is a little dated, but like the rest of the hotel, our room was very clean - perhaps a little on the small side... We didn't try the restaurant, but it looked fine.
We would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a short stay in Edinburgh as the location could not be better.
